In 5th grade, I took sewing lessons (on Sundays, not in school) and sewed a vest, a skirt, and a dress that I proudly wore on Shabbos so many times!

How old were you when you first burnt a meal?

18, I suppose
When I started cooking at 18, I burnt a lot of meals. Especially in the oven (that did not really work well).

How old were you when you first spoke a language other than your native language?

2-3 yrs old. My mother language is English, then I also learned to speak Yiddish.

How old were you when you realized that Hashem is not a person?

I kind of never thought Hashem was a person.

appr. 8 - I wrote several poems and then stapled the papers together as a book, and drew a nice front cover.

How old were you when you started making creative decorations for your Sukkah? (not in school)

"Shmoozinator," I'm in awe of you!!! You are amazing!!
You could have easily gotten angry at your madricha's comment, but you didn't, you took her words to heart and worked on your habit. And you are still working on it, you didn't slack off when you finished seminary!!!
Kol hakavod!!! May Hashem Help you further on your journey.
You have my deep awe and admiration.

17. Should I be embarrassed?
I helped my grandmother and lhbd'l my mother when they cooked, peeling, adding ingreds. to food etc. long before I was 17, but from 17 I started cooking whole meals alone.

How old were you when you first sewed a complete garment? (If you learned sewing in school)
If u feel comfortable, kindly write what you sewed.


That was a real hug 🤗
Amen, thank you so much for your kind words!

19!! My brother had moved out, and I cleaned his room out and painted (with my sister's help) and it was my first time EVER having my own space!

How old were you first time you changed a diaper?

I think about 9, but not on my own.

How old were you when you did not mind any more being excluded, not being part of the group?

I would love to be able to tell you that I've reached that point, but I was bullied and excluded during much of my school years, and it's left some scars 💔

How old were you when you set up your first email account?

I think around 29.

Yes, I am that old! The first personal computer was invented when I was about 18. I learned to type on a regular typewriter, the kind of thing that has NO on/off switch!!!! My brother told my about e-mails when I was about 22, because I slept at his place and his computer would turn on at night and make weird noises to collect the e-mails in his mailbox. It seemed very mysterious to me.

I also was left out a lot and sometimes bullied during my school years, but now I discovered that maybe I really lacked social skills, or I was too different from the other students.

How old were you when you first watched TV (or video on a TV screen)

Ooohhh, that's a tough one. In middle school, I used to make the ramen noodle soups with the packet that came in the yellow package, but I'm assuming that's not what you meant Very Happy
Probably shana rishona would have been the first time I cooked a soup start to finish totally by myself, so 22/23. I love soup though do I make it all the time now and became known for all my yummy ones 😋

17, I think? Just a car. It was a stick shift though, which I never fully learned to drive.

Very early 😂 my mom has anxiety, lots of things scared her. Can't pinpoint exactly what the first thing would have been though. Maybe when I was around 3, my brother was 6, and we took off early one Shabbos morning to a shul half a mile away to see our friends. That definitely freaked her out 😬

How old were you when you first got yourself in serious trouble? (With parents, school, law enforcement, anything)

Probably babysitting when I was around 11. But my first 'real' job was working in a camo when I was 13 or 14 and got a 'real' paycheck (and tips!)

How old were you when you built/put together your first piece of furniture?
